Welcome to Microsoft Discussion Groups:
To anyone trying to post to the 2k3 newsgroups today, I have to apologize. The web interface is totally and utterly messed up to the point that when you click on any discussion group in there you get a Service temporarily unavailable:
So I’d recommend that for today that you not rely on the web interface and use the old, clunky, everyone obviously hates it because everyone keeps pronouncing it dead, NNTP.
The web isn’t.
